(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A ball is tossed from an upper-story window of a building. The ball is given an initial velocity of 8.20 m/s at an angle of 15.0° below the horizontal. It strikes the ground 3.00 s later.

(a) How far horizontally from the base of the building does the ball strike the ground?

4.90wrong check mark m

(b) Find the height from which the ball was thrown.

wrong check mark m

(c) How long does it take the ball to reach a point 10.0 m below the level of launching?

2. Relevant equations

i think the equations are r= v^2(sin2theta)/g

h= v^2(sintheta)2/2g

3. The attempt at a solution

i tried pluggin in the values to get how far it travelled and the height..but im getting it wrong

any help would be appreciated
